How to balance life and work - part two

The following list a continuation from yesterday's and is from the Holistic Health and Education Centre that I mentioned the other day. There is no author on the handout, and I am merely transmitting the information, not taking credit. If you would like more information on the Centre and the people who look after it, please email me at karissadee at debtfreekid dot com.

6 - Pace yourself: maximize your effectiveness to make time for all of your important priorities. We all play many roles in our lives and must make sure we are the best at the ones that are most important to ourselves.

7 - Say no to the unimportant: set priorities on the things that matter most and say 'no' to the things that matter least.

8 - Take care of yourself: sometimes the things that suffer in our busy lives have to do with our own personal health. For example, fast food is a convenient time saver, but can lead to health and weight problems. Find out ways to improve and maintain personal health and wellness.

9 - Get a checkup: in order to maintain balance in your life, it's important to stay in touch with your physician. Is it time for a physical, and what kinds of questions and tests should you anticipate?
(Karissa's note: preventative health care is the most effective way to stay healthy and well and self-awareness is most important)

10 - Stop being a workaholic: if you have already found yourself in an addictive pattern with your job, it is time to get out of that habit and commit more time at home. Learn the warning signs of workaholism (K: there's that self-awareness again).
